Messages of Condolence

  1. Jon and Mia Neser condolence:

    We both loved Ruth. We will always remember that great sense of humor.

  2. Kathreen and Duane Schraufnagel condolence:

    We offer our Sympathy and Prayers
    to the Family of Ruth. She was a Lovely Lady.

    We know that Ruth will be deeply missed by all who knew her, including us.

    The Scriptures remind us, that “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord,” and that is a comforting thought.
    (Please see 2nd Corinthians 5:8 in the Bible)

  3. Cheryl condolence:

    My heart goes out to the family! Longevity is certainly a blessing, but death at any age is too soon. Death is unnatural and not a part of God’s original purpose, so for good reason the Bible calls death an enemy- one that God through Jesus Christ will soon eliminate (1 Corinthians 15:26). May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time. Click on the link for more comforting thoughts:

    My deepest sympathies to your family. My mother also lived at Cordia and I had the opportunity to meet Ruth many times. Always a sweet lady with a smile on her face. May peace be with you all.
